What we're about

Interested in cycling, but not sure where to start? Are you tired of going on rides by yourself or with the boys? Well, have I got the group for you! If you are new to cycling or a veteran rider, I invite you to gather for regular rides with us. Looking for a more inclusive, welcoming and fun, ongoing cycling experience. Our purpose is to gear up, get on, get out, and get going, feel the wind at our backs while having fun with like minded women. Who cares if the guys are faster than us, we just like to ride our bikes, chat, improve our fitness and become safer riders. Isn't that right? We will meet new people, give each other moral support and have fun socializing in the outdoors. Our routes will include; Washington County routes, Sauve Island, Springwater Corridor, Frenchmans Bar, Banks Vernonia trail, Scenic Gorge Hwy and many other options. Our rides vary from 25 to 85 miles at 15-18 MPH.
